A former Lewis County teacher charged with sex crimes with a minor was in court Friday.
Floyd Friend, Jr. appeared before Judge Kurt Hall in Weston for a hearing Friday morning.
Lawyers for Friend negotiated a plea deal that Judge Hall is still considering.
As a condition of his bond, Friend was told not to have contact with the alleged victim, but that condition was dismissed after the woman, now an adult, told the judge she'd like to be able to see him.
Friend will next appear in court in May for another hearing on his plea agreement.
